That Backache and some relief
An_239822 posted:
Buy a good heating pad that shuts off.
Make a fleece cover for it, it's washeable.
Make or buy some rice or millet and make some soft large bags. See directions below.
Soak in a warm tub or hottub.
Walk every day.
Distract yourself with a good hobby.

Take your medication. Use supplements, but be careful. Too much of a good thing is not good.

How to make a rice heating bag:
Cut two pieces of fabric or fleece about 14" square.
Sew up the bottom and sides
Sew one seam up the middle.
Pour about 3/4 cups unccooked round rice or millet into each side.
Sew up the ends.
You can make a slip cover so you can wash it.
Heat in micorwave 1 - 2 minutes. for scent: open or break a tea bag or scents into it when you make it. if you like.
Millet doesn't burn as fast and doesn't crumble.
